about

Ezza Rose Portland, Oregon

"There's the unaffected, Western-town hymns of Ezza Rose, fresh off an opening slot for the legendary Loudon Wainwright III. Driven by her subtle but breathtaking voice, Rose's upcoming sophomore album is among 2011's most anticipated local releases."

Track Name: Ophelia
He's my only home
wont go back oh no
he is my only home
call me crazy, I am wild
I've been in love since i were a child
and I will never forget the face
that put me in my grave
Track Name: 2%
All I wanted now was a two percent song
a two percent song so that you would follow me
all I wanted now was a two percent voice
a two percent voice so that you would sing along

He’ll be happy now cause he’s found his little moon
he sings from his cocoon far way
he’ll be happy now for he will never fall
he won’t loose it all again

All I wanted now was a two percent song
a two percent song so that you would follow me
all I wanted now was a two percent voice
a two percent voice so that you would sing along

You’ll be happy now cause I love an other man
I give him all I can but lie broken in his hands
You’ll be happy now cause I will never fall
I wont loose it all again

All I wanted now was a two percent song
a two percent song so that you would follow me
all I wanted now was a two percent voice
a two percent voice so that you would sing along
Track Name: County Line
I walk this old county line
lookin for something I lost along the way
I can’t find you, I can’t find you

Took a train to the East set my eyes to feast upon you
when I got to your town all I found was your essence on the ground

oh oh Claudio x4
like a trail of breadcrumbs I follow you down x2

Took an airplane to the south, knew you’d be in a different house
Couldn’t bring myself to see, scared what would become of me

oh oh Claudio x4
like a trail of breadcrumbs I follow you down x2

I walk this old county line
lookin for something I lost along the way
I can’t find you
Track Name: Blue Sheets
I’ve got a hole in my foot
I can walk fine
I can walk but a crooked line
you’ve got a hole in your knee
from which you bleed
all your catastrophes

N’ all I see is blue
all I see in blue sheets

I’ve got a lamp in my stomach
which helps me see
all my philosophies
you’ve got a bullet in you hand
that you caught
for the war wasn’t good enough

N’ all I see is blue
all I see in blue sheets x2
Track Name: Jamais Jamais
I would like to hold you in my arms once again
I would like to show you how I move
I would like to dream a little dream of you again
with out the nightmare of waking to some one new

I would like to call you on the telephone again
I would like to tell you that I’m true
But what’s the use in calling when I would have to pretend
that I were no longer in love with you

I broke down and listened to your music again
heard that you’d been writing something new
how an I supposed to remain sane when
you’ve been writing about me leaving you

I don’t want to never ever love an other lover again x4
Track Name: Broken Hands
I want a boy with broken hands x2
to comb through my hair and to till the land
I want a boy with broken hands

I want a boy with worn in feet x2
knows how to walk on the cold concrete
I want a boy with worn in feet

Oh my lover don’t you go now
oh my lover don’t you go
your worn hand will leave me for a better lover
oh my lover don’t you go

I want a boy with a fucked up smile
gonna buy him a drink see if he’ll stay for a while
he’s got a heart that I long to hold
place it in my keeping I will watch it as you grow old

Oh my lover don’t you go now
oh my lover don’t you go
your worn hands will leave me for an other lover
oh my lover don’t you go x2
Track Name: Shakin' The Apple Tree
Eyes plastered open
fingers waiting mind is hoping
sun is rising and I am falling on today

come and break my day x2

N’ who’s been shakin the apple tree
oh who’s been shakin it with me
Rob, Tony, Johnny, or little Susie Connie
who’s a gonna shake it with me

Come N’ break my day x2

Cause I can’t shake this alone

Come N’ break my day x2

Heels have been sinking
oh my mind has been drinkin
sun been setting and I keep forgetting
that I’m ok

Come N’ shake my day x2

Who’s been shakin all the mountain tops
oh who’s a gonna shake um with me
the man or the cops, big brother, or the boss
who’s a gonna shake it with me
the devil or god, or my own damn papa
who’s a gonna shake it with me
Track Name: Baby Blue
I love my baby blue x4
N’ I’m gonna love you till the day that I die x3
you and those big brown eyes

meet me at half moon x4
Bay x4

N’ I’m gonna love you till the day that I die x3
you and those big brown eyes
Track Name: Trigger
I’ve got my finger on the trigger but somehow your still alive x2

Well my feet were bruised and hollow when I ran into morning today
and my hands were heavy in sorrow for I’d given my Daniel away
gave him away x3

I’ve got my finger on the trigger but somehow your still alive x2

Shady lane, my memory
by the lilly pond waters a woman waits for me
she waits for me x3

I’ve got my finger on the trigger but somehow your still alive x2
Track Name: Heaven's Come and Gone
The well has run dry mama
the well has run dry ma
all the fish will die
what kind of person am I
when the well’s run dry

How m’ I ever gonna get to heaven
when I’ve been drivin strait to hell
for my heavens come n’ gone that’s why I write these songs
my heaven’s come n’ gone x2

No I can’t go back to the city
that you and I once call our own
for your hair has grown long
and your singing your song
to your heaven, to your heaven

The well has run dry mama
the well has run dry ma
all the fish will die
what kind of person am I
when the well’s run dry
